Did you get your mitts on Sunday’s New York Times magazine? The issue is chock-full of architecture, and we can’t help but be reminded of architect Jean-Paul Viguier’s Cool Models/Maquettes Froides show at the newly opened Stieren Center for Exhibition at the McNay. It’s a collection of Viguier’s works, complete with a video that explains the McNay’s glass ceiling — the real showstopper when I attended this past Saturday. Viguier’s goal of allowing natural light into the McNay was ideal, especially for a museum in Texas, where sunlight is present for, what, 99.9 percent of our summer? `Read last week’s review, “Bright light, big city,” at sacurrent.com.`
If you’re over at SoSoFlo this weekend for Second Saturday, we strongly recommend checking out an “encore” of Francisco Delgado’s exhibition Bordeño Chronicles at Gallista Gallery. In late April, the exhibit was up at the Universidad Autónoma de México, then was pulled down less than a week after being installed due to its content. Delgado uses satire and dark humor to express the U.S.-Mexico border conflicts. In the press materials, Gallista owner Joe Lopez says: “We’ve gotten plenty of feedback from our customers, and have no doubt that his work says something.”
